Weekend Scare and Levels

Saturday night I started spotting. I was very scared as it was different than last time. I called my nurse and she said to rest and keep my feet up. I also had to go in for an ultrasound on Sunday afternoon. They did the ultrasound and everything seemed to look okay. They could see one baby (but there could be another one at the next ultrasound??). They were looking for blood in my uterus that indicated hemorrhaging. Sense I am only 5 weeks, it was hard to see a fetal pole and yolk sak, but the nurse thought she could get a glimpse of one every now and then. This was hard for me because the last time I was pregnant they could not find the fetal pole and yolk sak. It was encouraging that they caught a glimpse of one.
The Dr. looked at the pictures and said there was no need to be put on bed rest, but I needed to keep my feet up as much as possible.
My progesterone is still stable, and my HCG is at 6,034. Both looked really great.
Thank you all so much for your prayers and concern. This weekend was hard, and a big scare for James and me, but through it all we knew it would be okay.
That is it for now.
